When recovering from heart failure (HF), the myocardium displays a marked plasticity and can regain normal gene expression and function; however, recovery of substrate oxidation capacity has not been explored. We tested whether cardiac functional recovery is matched by normalization of energy substrate utilization during post-HF recovery. HF was induced in(More)
BACKGROUND Pathological left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy frequently progresses to dilated heart failure with suppressed mitochondrial oxidative capacity. Dietary marine ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFA) up-regulate adiponectin and prevent LV dilation in rats subjected to pressure overload. This study 1) assessed the effects of ω-3 PUFA on LV(More)
